Nine in for Journalist editorship

Nine candidates are understood to be in for the job of editor of the Journalist to succeed Tim Gopsill who is retiring after 21 years editing the NUJ magazine.
The deadline for applications ended yesterday. A shortlist has to be approved by the union and then a ballot begins on October 6, ending on November 6. Among the candidates are Rich Simcox, who edits Activate magazine for the Public and Commercial Services union, and Coventry freelance Chris Youett.

I heard it was ten.

Shortlisting tomorrow but effectively they must all get through due to the anti-trade union laws that prevent unions from following their own rules and making their own decisions.
